Regensburg, 2. September 2010— CipSoft announced today that the iPhone client for its popular mobile MMORPG TibiaME has been submitted for approval.
“I think we've pretty much nailed it.” says Uli Schlott, Managing Director of CipSoft and responsible Product Manager for TibiaME.“Over the last 18 months, our dev team has done a marvellous job in creating the new iPhone client. It really looks great and everyone over here very excited about it. All we can do at the moment is keeping our fingers crossed for a quick and smooth approval”, Schlott admits.
The new iPhone client is the last step in CipSoft's effort to completely overhaul TibiaME. During the last weeks, CipSoft not only released new High-Res clients for Symbian v5 and v3 devices, but also integrated touch controls and a complete map polish.
“TibiaME is online since 2003 and already has a community of around 50,000 active players,” explains Andreas Weikl, Marketing Manager for CipSoft.“Therefore our new iPhone players won't enter an empty game world. Right from the start we are able to offer them more content and a bigger community than any other iPhone game out there.” Weikl promises.
Regardless of the installed client (Symbian S60v3, S60v5, Java or iPhone) all players will login to the same game world and play together on the same map.
The iPhone client will be distributed for free in the App Store. Premium subscriptions are available via in-app purchases.
